svn+ssh on the Windows command-line

To use svn+ssh:// style svn URLs on the Windows command-line, ensure the %SVN_SSH% environment variable is properly set:

  • It must contain the fully-qualified path to the SSH client (typically plink.exe from the PuTTY suite)
  • The path must be written using forward-slashes instead of the Windows-standard backslash.

setx SVN_SSH "C:/Program Files (x86)/PuTTY/plink.exe"
